Learn More About Our Clean Products
Gordon Craftworks is on a mission to use healthier ingredients in our premium products. We work hard to source the right materials to use in our handmade goods.
Our handcrafted products contain:
Phthalates are typically found in personal care and household items as one of the fragrance ingredients used as carriers to help make the scent linger. Human health effects from exposure to low levels of phthalates are unknown. Some types of phthalates have affected the reproductive system of laboratory animals. None of our fragrances contain phthalates.
NO Prop 65 Ingredients
The ingredients included on the California Prop 65 list are a wide range of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. None of our fragrances require Prop 65 labeling.
A carcinogen is an ingredient or chemical known or thought to cause cancer.
A mutagen is a chemical or physical agent that has the ability to change our genetic code in a harmful way. Exposure to a mutagen can produce DNA mutations that cause or contribute to diseases such as cancer.
NO Reproductive Toxins
A reproductive toxin is a substance or agent that can cause adverse effects on the reproductive system. The toxic effects may include alterations to the reproductive organs and/or the endocrine system (which includes the thyroid and adrenal glands). These effects can occur in both men and women.
NO Acute Toxins
An acute toxin is a substance that poses significant adverse health effects for immediate or short-term exposures. The route of exposure that causes the adverse effect may be inhalation, absorption (through skin, eyes, or mucous membranes), or ingestion, depending on the chemical.
NO Organ Toxins
An organ toxin is a chemical that can cause adverse effects or disease states manifested in specific organs of the body.
NO Animal Testing
The term “animal testing” refers to procedures performed on living animals for purposes of research into assessing the effectiveness of new products and testing the human health and/or environmental safety of consumer and industry products. All procedures, even those classified as “mild,” have the potential to cause the animals physical as well as psychological distress.
Paraffin is a byproduct of petroleum, a non-renewable resource. And while it might seem obvious to some, many people don’t realize that inhaling the fumes from paraffin candles is not good for your health. When paraffin candles burn, they emit soot and fumes, similar in chemistry to diesel exhaust—containing poisonous chemicals such as benzene, toluene, naphthalene, tri-decane, tetra-decane, penta-decane, and hexadecane.
Volatile organic compounds are compounds that have a high vapor pressure and low water solubility. Many VOCs are human-made chemicals that are used and produced in the manufacture of paints, pharmaceuticals, and refrigerants. VOCs typically are industrial solvents, such as trichloroethylene; fuel oxygenates, such as methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE); or by-products produced by chlorination in water treatment, such as chloroform. VOCs are often components of petroleum fuels, hydraulic fluids, paint thinners, and dry cleaning agents.

*All our dyes are REACH registered, which is a regulation designed to protect human and environmental health from chemicals that could cause harm to the people, planet or animals.
